    I assure you that I'm not eating too little. In fact, I'm pretty sure that the reason I'm not losing weight is because I eat too much. Though I can easily keep my carb intake less than 100 g/day (I usually eat around 75-80g--it's hard to get below 50 though), I eat between 2100-2300 calories and about 170 g of protein per day. That's definitely too many calories and too much protein. I'm a 5'4", 133 lb female. So you can see how ridiculously much I eat. Even if I fast most of the day, I still end up eating over 2000 calories during my 5-hour eating window.

    Then cut back on calories, push through the hunger and let the body adapt. in my 8 hr window, i eat about 1500-1700. (five ft seven and 128 or so).

    Dial back on protein and replace it with more non-starchy vegetables. That will reduce your calories, provide extra vitamins and minerals and fiber and you should still feel full and satisfied.
